I’m having trouble with the display of my digital journal.
If you are seeing blurry text within the Science Web Reader, this can be caused by a few things that are easily fixed. Here are some troubleshooting options that should help:
First, check your browser to ensure it is not expanded. As shown in the image below, there are 3 dots in the upper right side of your screen that render a menu of options when you click on them. If your zoom is set for higher than 100%, it may cause distortion. You can adjust it using the “+” and “-“ buttons to either side.
If the issue is not your browser setting, there are two ways to read and adjust the journal online. After clicking on the journal in the email and opening the digital version:
- In the right-hand corner of your screen you will see a box with “Reading View.”
- If you click that button you are transferred into “Page View.”
- In each version there is a zoom option at the bottom of the screen, per the red boxes in the images below.
If you continue to experience difficulty, please contact AAAS MemberCentral Support and an associate will be happy to help you.
